Breastfeedig starting to hurt. It hurts to where im grinding my teeth all throughout nursing. I get a sharp pain that makea me feel like ok of I poke my breast will it go away. Also is it ok to have baby nurse only on one breast and next feeding on the other. She nurses for about 20, 25 minutes. I think. I can feel milk through my breast. Im also fuller. Oh and she was 7 lbs 2 oz. Discharge weight is 6 lbs 6 oz. I gace her 15cc of formula (I regret it) because nurse aaid I was starving her because she refussd to lath on. I felt bad. I hate myself for it. I looked online and t said go by amount of diapers. She had 3 or 4 wet diapers. She was just tired. Nurse came and said I was starving her because she didnt eat for 6 diapers. She nursed for 5 seconds amd fell aslesp. She said I need give her formula. I saod no, hows that going help her nurse? She said if u don't feed her formila I will. She left. She came back later and said did I give her formula, I saod no shes nursing fine now she aaid give hed it evedy 2 hours, make her nurse, then give formula. I said no. She huffed. I told lactation consultant what she did amd how shw threatened me. Shes reportig her. She said. You did fine, im glad you didnt listen and stood yoir ground. Giving formula hurts your supply, not helps. I feel bad i gave her formula though :( oh, reason why she refused breast was the pacifier. When I threw it away she took to breast.
